Astonishing But Unsurprising Admission

 From Critical Race Theory in the Academy (2020):

Curiously, this criticism of hiring that picks the best rather than the right race is about hiring in the academy, the place most loudly hostile to racism.  This leads to three questions:

1. Why are progressive-dominated institutions so racist?

2. Is the real problem that these institutions are meritocratic in goals, and too many BIPOCs are using failure of the standards of merit as an excuse to demand preferred hiring?

3. Why are Asian-Americans not running into these same problems?  Are they suddenly considered white, unlike BIPOCs?
